Massimo announced the news on January 16th, 2024 that Chapek would be joining their Board of Directors. Chapek was Chief Executive Officer of The Walt Disney Company between February 2020 to November 2022, before Bob Iger stepped back into that role when Chapek’s abrupt departure was announced. During his time with The Walt Disney Company, Chapek navigated unforeseen circumstances including the COVID-19 Pandemic, ambitious transformative projects at Disney World, Disneyland, and internationally, as well as exploring and repositioning streaming media of Disney films and shows to their Disney+ streaming platform and its partner companies at Hulu, ABC, and EPSN+.
